Dairy Problems?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I think that I might be having problems with dairy. But I'm not sure what this means exactly. I know that some people have sesitivities to lactose and some cesian. I know when I was originally tested for celiac they tested me for lactose and there were not any positive results. Could I be sensitive to it a year later? If I want to do a test to see if I'm sensitive to it, how long do I have to go without? I've been having really strong cravings for milk lately. Is that suggestive of anything? Also I think my skin has been acting up because of the increased dairy. I love my dairy. If it isn't dairy causing me problems what else might it be? Any help would be appreciated.

As far as I am aware (I am not an expert but have read a lot) allergies can be tested but there is no real test for intolerances.

Intolerances are diagnosed by a diet of exclusion.

I can have some dairy, but the other day I had a latte in the morning and a in the afternoon - stupid! For some reason I am better with skim milk and cheese than the full cream variety - which I find weird.

Hi there! There actually are test that can tell you what your food intolerances are. It is a bloodtest, I used Lame Advertisement (they have a website). They can see how 200 different foods react with your blood. Then based on how strongly they react, you are either severely intolerant/moderately intolerant/mildly intolerant. So I am not sure what might be causing your problems. I wasn't tested for a lactose intolerance, but I know I am, also I am sensitive to whey, which is also found in dairy products. There are actually many components in foods that we can be intolerant of, because a lot of foods have several different proteins/substances in them. Try eliminating all dairy for three weeks(all dairy, so read labels!) or until you have no symptoms and then reintroduce it. When you reintroduce it, do it in the morning or on an empty stomach. If it causes any symptoms to re-surface then you will know that you are intolerant. In this case you will probably need to eliminate it for a longer period, say 3- 6 months. Then start the reintroducing process over. Hope that helps
